Happy Saturday!!!! It is very cold here. Well, not VERY cold, it is fairly cold here. Cold enough that my usual Saturday routine of a very long dog walk and running over to the recycling center is not so appealing. So instead, I will stay by my space heater and do taxes!
Okay, there are three VERY IMPORTANT things for us to talk about.
First, Gangubai Trailer!
The thing that sticks out to me the most, is that there is no plot? I mean, it’s kind of a weird trailer as a trailer. Just a bunch of cut together scenes of Alia in character all mixed up. I like Alia’s performance okay, although it does have a touch of that Ranbir-in-Sanju feel of impersonation more than acting. And there are lots of interesting moments. I’m just worried the final film might be kind of a mess if they couldn’t even cut together a coherent trailer.
Next, new Gehraiyaan song!
The most fascinating part to me is the song. Super hip non-filmi musician did the music apparently, and it is so different and hypnotic and all of that, it makes me really curious about the movie that would be going for that sort of vibe. Although I think we can all agree, this is still and forever will be the best song ever in a Shakun Batra movie:
And finally, Salman’s new music video!!!! OMG, it is so delightfully Salman. It’s just him dancing with a bunch of people he likes! Including Anil, Aamir, and Kat!!! Only flaw, not enough Helen. Best part, when he refers to Anil as his “junior”. Because it’s true, Anil is always young at heart.
